My latest comic strip restaurant review is online at Twin Cities Daily Planet. Btw, if you are a fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation, you might be interested in this one. No seriously.

QU33R won the Ignatz award for Outstanding Anthology or Collection on Saturday night. I never would have believed it would happen, and I’m still a little stunned. Anyway, thanks to all of the mighty contributors who made the book what it is and our publisher, Zan Christensen of Northwest Press for, you know, putting it out there. If you don’t have the book, you can order it directly from the NWP here in either print or digital form. Weeee! It was a really good weekend. I’m grateful.

The book I edited, QU33R (2014, Northwest Press) has been nominated for an Ignatz Award, in the Outstanding Anthology or Collection category, at SPX this weekend! If you’re attending SPX, consider a vote for QU33R! The awards ceremony will be held Saturday night, 9/13. 

Here’s the last of the excerpts I’ve been running this week to celebrate the book and the nomination. Naturally a lot of the comics in QU33R focus on romance, sex, & longing, as in these pages from Carrie McNinch, Sina Sparrow, Justin Hall, Kris Dresen, and me, Rob Kirby. Once again, major props to Michael Fahy for his gorgeous face-of-QU33R cover. Ignatz hype aside, I’m very proud of this book and grateful to all the creators who helped make it a success.

QU33R will be on sale at SPX both days from the great ED “Wuvable Oaf” LUCE at table K7!

I’m running a smattering of excerpts from the book this week to celebrate. QU33R features a lot of Gender-y themed comics, from cis and non-cis gendered folks alike. Depicted here are excerpts from stories by Dylan Edwards, Diane DiMassa, Andy Hartzell, and L. Nichols. And yes, the cover art by Michael Fahy addresses identity brilliantly as well.

Here’s another smattering of excerpts from the book that I’m running this week to celebrate. Today’s theme is DRAG QUEENS, as lovingly depicted from top to bottom (snigger) by the lovely Sasha Steinberg (aka Sasha Velour), glamorous Eric Kostiuk Williams, and brilliant Michael Fahy (who also drew the amazing cover art).

Fun review of PRATFALL on Optical Sloth today: “Has the theme of falling on your face/ass/other ever been the subject of a comics anthology before? I can’t think of one but it’s such a natural fit.”  Thanks as always to the inimitable Kevin Bramer. We small press zine folk appreciate you very much!
PRATFALL will be on sale at SPX from awesome contributor John Porcellino (at table K14), and also-awesome contributors Jason Viola and Cara Bean will have copies at their tables (C8 & C9A). Walk very carefully - don’t trip! - over to either party to get your copy this weekend! Tell ‘em Rob K sentcha.

My interview with Sophie Yanow, author of the Ignatz-nominated War of Streets and Houses, is up on Panel Patter today, as part of their SPX Spotlight 2014 series. So go read it, Yanow? I mean y’know?

Back-of-the envelope art from my peers: up top, a note from “big spendin’” Eric Orner. He was was sending me some dough for extra copies of THREE #1. It’s filled w/ all kinds of private jokes between Eric and I and I love it (yes, that is Garrison Keillor in the background on the right - I’m a Minnesotan).  

The second one, literally drawn on the envelope, is my “Rob” cartoon alter ego drawn by the awesome Kevin Czapiewski. He was sending me some comics this past spring. 

I always get a kick out of other cartoonists drawing my Rob character. 

And I love love love ENVELOPE ART. Act accordingly, everybody - draw on your correspondence, people totally appreciate it!
